Fidelity D & D Bancorp, Inc. Reports 2022 Financial Results Improved 25%

DUNMORE, Pa., Jan. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fidelity D & D Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: FDBC) and its banking subsidiary, The Fidelity Deposit and Discount Bank, announced its unaudited, consolidated financial results for the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2022.

Unaudited Financial Information

Net income recorded for the year ended December 31, 2022 was $30.0 million, or $5.29 diluted earnings per share, compared to $24.0 million, or $4.48 diluted earnings per share, for the year ended December 31, 2021. The $6.0 million, or 25% improvement in net income stemmed from the $10.5 million improvement in net interest income partially offset by $1.6 million less non-interest income, $1.2 million in additional non-interest expenses and a $1.4 million higher provision for income taxes.

The acquisition of Landmark Bancorp, Inc. (“Landmark”) during the third quarter of 2021 resulted in growth in the Company’s earning assets which contributed to net interest income growth. The Company continued to operate four community banking offices acquired from Landmark which contributed to the increased operating expenses.

“We are pleased with our outstanding 2022 financial results. Fidelity Bank achieved record financial results and increased an already strong regulatory capital position. The year was marked by the successful execution of key strategic initiatives and synergies from the Landmark acquisition. Our asset quality metrics remain strong, and our solid capital position allowed us to increase our dividend payments to our shareholders for the eighth consecutive year,” stated Daniel J. Santaniello, President and Chief Executive Officer. “As we enter 2023, we are well positioned to continue to create shareholder value.”

Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2022 was $7.1 million, or $1.26 diluted earnings per share, compared to $7.8 million, or $1.37 diluted earnings per share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2021. The $0.6 million, or 8%, decline in net income resulted from the $0.5 million increase in the provision for income taxes, $0.3 million higher non-interest expenses and a $0.3 million decrease in non-interest income. The contributors to lower net income were partially offset by the $0.4 million improvement in net interest income quarter-over-quarter. 

Consolidated Fourth Quarter Operating Results Overview

Net interest income was $18.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2022, a 3% increase over the $17.9 million earned for the fourth quarter of 2021. The $0.4 million improvement in net interest income resulted primarily from a $37.4 million increase in the average balance of interest-earning assets supplemented by a 38 basis point increase in fully-taxable equivalent (“FTE”) yields on these earning assets partially offset by higher interest expense. The loan portfolio had the biggest impact, producing a $1.8 million increase in interest income from $88.3 million in higher average balances and an increase of 23 basis points in FTE yields earned on loans. Residential real estate contributed the most to the increase in loan interest income, growing $1.1 million from $54.7 million in higher average balances and a 53 basis point increase in FTE yields. Interest income in the commercial portfolio increased $0.4 million during the fourth quarter of 2022 versus the fourth quarter of 2021, despite the recognition of $0.9 million less Small Business Administration (“SBA”) fees attributable to Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) loans and $0.8 million less in fair value accretion on acquired loans over the same time periods. Interest income from the investment portfolio grew $0.3 million primarily from mortgage-backed securities which increased $4.0 million in average balances and 33 basis point higher FTE yields earned thereon. Interest income on interest-bearing deposits grew $0.4 million from higher yields. Partially offsetting the increase in interest income, interest expense grew $2.1 million primarily due to a 48 basis point increase in rates paid on interest-bearing deposits which resulted in $2.0 million in additional interest expense.

The overall cost of interest-bearing liabilities was 0.74% for the fourth quarter of 2022, an increase of 51 basis points from the 0.23% paid for the fourth quarter of 2021. The cost of funds increased 36 basis points to 0.53% for the fourth quarter of 2022 from 0.17% for the fourth quarter of 2021. The Company’s FTE (non-GAAP measurement) net interest spread was 3.04% for the fourth quarter of 2022, down 13 basis points from the 3.17% recorded for the fourth quarter of 2021. FTE net interest margin increased by three basis points to 3.27% for the three months ended December 31, 2022 from 3.24% for the same 2021 period. Average non-interest bearing deposits, which impact net interest margin, increased $23.4 million quarter-over-quarter resulting in the widening gap between spread and margin.

The provision for loan losses was $0.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2022, a $0.1 million increase compared to $0.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2021. The increase was due to the higher provisioning required for loan growth in the fourth quarter of 2022 compared to the year earlier period. This amount of provisioning reflected what management deemed necessary to maintain the allowance for loan and lease losses at an adequate level.

Total non-interest income decreased $0.3 million, or 6%, to $3.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2022 compared to $4.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2021. The decrease in non-interest income was primarily attributable to $0.3 million lower gains on the sale of loans and $0.2 million less service charges on loans primarily from a decline in mortgage loan service charges and commercial loan late fees. The Company also recognized $0.1 million less fees from financial services and $0.1 million lower rental income. Partially offsetting these decreases was $0.2 million lower losses on disposal of equipment and $0.1 million higher service charges on deposits.

Non-interest expenses increased $0.3 million, or 2%, for the fourth quarter of 2022 to $12.9 million from $12.6 million for the same quarter of 2021. Non-interest expense increases were primarily due to $0.2 million higher professional services, $0.1 million in additional equipment maintenance and rental expenses and $0.1 million more in data processing and communications expenses. These increases were partially offset by decreases of $0.1 million in FDIC assessment and $0.1 million in advertising and marketing expenses. 

The provision for income taxes increased $0.5 million during the fourth quarter of 2022 due to an adjustment to the provision calculation recorded during the fourth quarter of 2022.

Consolidated Year-To-Date Operating Results Overview

Net interest income was $72.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2022 compared to $61.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2021. The $10.5 million, or 17%, improvement was the result of earnings from a larger average balance of interest-earning assets supplemented by higher FTE yields earned on these assets which offset an increase in interest expense from a larger average balance and rate paid on interest-bearing deposits. The loan portfolio had the biggest impact, producing $8.6 million more interest income from $200.8 million in higher average balances and a one basis point increase in yields. Interest income in the commercial portfolio increased $3.2 million during 2022 compared to 2021, despite recognition of $3.9 million less SBA fees attributable to PPP loans over the same time periods. Interest income from investments increased $3.8 million from a $167.2 million larger average balance in the portfolio along with a 12 basis point increase in yields. On the funding side, interest expense increased by $2.8 million due to a $217.4 million larger average balance of interest-bearing deposits and a 14 basis point increase in the rates paid on those deposits. FTE net interest spread was 3.16% for 2022, or unchanged from the 3.16% recorded for 2021. Over the same time period, the Company’s FTE net interest margin increased by five basis points to 3.28% from 3.23%. The increase in FTE net interest margin is primarily attributable to the growth of $76.9 million in average non-interest-bearing deposits.

For the year ended December 31, 2022, the provision for loan losses was $2.1 million, a $0.1 million increase compared to $2.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2021. The increase in provision expense approximated the growth in loans for the year. This amount of provisioning was respective to the loan growth achieved during 2022 and reflected what management deemed necessary to maintain the allowance for loan and lease losses at an adequate level.

Total non-interest income for the year ended December 31, 2022 was $16.7 million, a decrease of $1.6 million, or 9%, from $18.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2021. The decrease in non-interest income was attributable to the decline in residential mortgage activity stemming from increased mortgage rates and a reduction in secondary market activity which lowered the level of gains by $2.5 million during 2022 compared to 2021. Also, the Company also recorded $0.7 million less service charges on loans primarily from less mortgage loan service charges. Partially offsetting these decreases was $0.9 million in higher service charges on deposits, $0.2 million higher interchange fees and $0.2 million more fees from trust fiduciary activities.

Non-interest expenses increased to $51.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2022, an increase of $1.2 million, or 2%, from $50.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2021. Non-interest expenses would have increased another $3.4 million if not for merger-related expenses of $3.0 million and a FHLB prepayment penalty of $0.4 million incurred during 2021. The largest driver of this increase was a $2.9 million increase in salaries and employee benefit expenses primarily from $1.4 million lower loan origination cost deferrals and $0.9 million higher salaries. Premises and equipment expenses increased $0.6 million primarily from additional lease payments and higher equipment maintenance and rental expenses. PA shares tax expense also increased $0.3 million year-over-year.

The provision for income taxes increased $1.4 million during 2022 compared to 2021 due to the higher income before taxes and a $0.2 million adjustment to the provision calculation recorded during the fourth quarter of 2022. 

Consolidated Balance Sheet & Asset Quality Overview

The Company’s total assets declined to $2.4 billion as of December 31, 2022, a decrease of $41 million from December 31, 2021. Growth in the loan portfolio of $99 million was offset by a reduction of the investments portfolio by $95 million primarily due to recording net unrealized losses resulting from the significantly higher interest rates throughout 2022 along with paydowns and $68 million lower cash balances. The net growth in loans includes $39 million in paydowns on PPP loans, net of deferred fees. Partially offsetting the decrease in the investment portfolio was an increase within other assets from the $19 million increase in deferred tax assets due to the unrealized losses in the investment portfolio. During the same time period, total liabilities increased $8 million. Deposits declined $3 million and therefore $13 million in short-term borrowings, after use of excess cash balances, were needed to fund loan growth.

Shareholders’ equity decreased $48.8 million, or 23%, to $162.9 million at December 31, 2022 from $211.7 million at December 31, 2021. The decrease was caused by an $71.3 million, after tax, reduction in accumulated other comprehensive income from net unrealized losses recorded on the investment portfolio stemming from the increase in intermediate to long-term U.S. Treasury interest rates. At December 31, 2022, there were no securities identified with credit-related, other-than-temporary impairment losses. During 2022, the Company acquired treasury stock totaling $1.3 million which further reduced shareholders’ equity. Partially offsetting these decreases, retained earnings improved from net income of $30.0 million, partially offset by $7.7 million in cash dividends paid to shareholders. An additional $1.5 million recorded from the issuance of common stock under the Company’s stock plans and stock-based compensation also partially offset the decrease in shareholders’ equity. Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) is excluded from regulatory capital ratios. The Company remains well capitalized with Tier 1 capital at 8.69% of total average assets as of December 31, 2022. Total risk-based capital was 14.35% of risk-weighted assets and Tier 1 risk-based capital was 13.27% of risk-weighted assets as of December 31, 2022. Tangible book value per share was $25.18 at December 31, 2022 compared to $33.68 at December 31, 2021. Tangible common equity was 6.01% of total assets at December 31, 2022 compared to 7.93% at December 31, 2021.

Asset Quality

Total non-performing assets were $4.1 million, or 0.17% of total assets, at December 31, 2022, compared to $6.4 million, or 0.27% of total assets, at December 31, 2021. Past due and non-accrual loans to total loans were 0.28% at December 31, 2022 compared to 0.34% at December 31, 2021. Net charge-offs to average total loans were 0.04% at December 31, 2022 unchanged compared to 0.04% at December 31, 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures to provide information useful to the reader in understanding its operating performance and trends, and to facilitate comparisons with the performance of other financial institutions. Management uses these measures internally to assess and better understand our underlying business performance and trends related to core business activities. The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures and key performance indicators may differ from the non-GAAP financial measures and key performance indicators other financial institutions use to measure their performance and trends. Non-GAAP financial measures should be supplemental to GAAP used to prepare the Company’s operating results and should not be read in isolation or relied upon as a substitute for GAAP measures. Reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP operating measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the tables at the end of this release.

Management believes merger-related expenses are not standard costs necessary for operations. These charges principally represent professional fees and system conversion and integration costs related to the transaction. These costs are specific to each individual transaction and may vary significantly based on the size and complexity of the transaction. Management also believes the FHLB prepayment fee incurred to payoff FHLB advances is non-recurring and should be excluded from normal operating expenses for proper comparison.

Interest income was adjusted to recognize the income from tax exempt interest-earning assets as if the interest was taxable, fully-taxable equivalent (FTE), in order to calculate certain ratios within this document. This treatment allows a uniform comparison among yields on interest-earning assets. Interest income was FTE adjusted, using the corporate federal tax rate of 21% for 2022 and 2021.
